CornBelt Regional

RNA meeting

October 18-19  2019 

Monsanto Auditorium at

University of Missouri, Columbia, MO

Keynote speaker: Dr Barb Golden Purdue University

KeyNote Seminar presentation begins at 1 PM, Friday October 18th

She will also be presenting the Saturday Morning Science seminar at 10:30 on Saturday, a talk designed to educate the general public and is attended by members of the community and high school students.  You are encouraged to attend and engage with the public (perhaps at your poster!) and participate in this outreach opportunity  


(TBA, based on abstracts submitted - watch this space!)

All remaining talks will be selected from submitted abstracts! We are hoping to accommodate every undergraduate, Grad student and postdoc who wants to give an oral presentation. However we DO encourage you to also present your work on a poster so you can get quality interactions and feedback on your work, and perhaps initiate collaborations.
